A Vietnamese model named Phuong Khanh Nguyen, 23, takes the crown for this year’s Miss Earth. Nguyen who is a marketing student and model beat out 86 other women to become Miss Earth 2018. She becomes the first Vietnamese woman to win the crown. The beauty contest took place in the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City, Philippines.
Nguyen was born in the Vietnamese province of Ben Tre. She stands 5’6″ and speaks both Vietnamese and English. Ever since she was 15, when she first saw the Miss Earth 2010 competition, she dreamt of one day becoming Miss Earth. On her description page on Miss Earth she thanks her environment and her parents for her love of nature. “I do treasure my childhood days together with my family. I am thankful to my parents who provided me on what nature offers about life being raised in farmlands,” she told Miss Earth Magazine.
It was a tight competition but she emerged victorious because of the answer she gave. When asked, “Being a millennial, what is the most pressing issue of your generation?”
Phuong Khanh Nguyen answered, “The most pressure for our generation, my generation is our ignorance.
“We have so much technology, and we just use it for social media and we just care for ourselves.
“We should spend our time to think and feel what’s happening with the Earth right now and when small actions multiplied by million people can transform the world”
